that perfect hand…

In Ocean's 11, Danny said that "the house always wins. If you play long enough, never change the stakes, then the house takes you. Unless, when that perfect hand comes along, you bet big… and then, you take the house." Here's the hand I've been dealt, sometimes it's risky and sometimes it's safe, but all the time… it's perfect. It's mine.

the way I see it…


There is not enough time in a day or week or semester to get done what needs to. Not just school, but hanging out with God, devos, working out, cooking meals, calling home, writing e-mails, sleeping, watering plants, staring at pictures on the wall, spinning around and around on the chair Auntie M gave me, adjusting my webcam to perfect focus for Skype conversations with Ang in Europe, moisturizing, plucking my eyebrows, going to the doctor/dentist/optometrist, ensuring summer work, dreaming about the future, missing people, making friends, opening and closing the window and/or blinds, using measuring cups, brushing my teeth, downloading music, laundry, riding the bus (or driving for that matter), watching Prison Break, taking clothes to the Salvation Army, making my bed and unmaking it to go to bed, hanging up clothes, making small talk with roommates, charging my cell phone and/or iPod, rollerblading, making coffee (sans Lenten fasting), or writing on my blog?

Seriously. How in the world can I do what I need to do? From that list, I would appreciate some insights and aid in prioritizing. I lack so much motivation right now and it’s not good at all. I just don’t know how to get everything done. Believe it or not, I just wasted 15 minutes on this list. Clearly, I am doing something wrong! Worldly wise advice? Yes, please!!

  1. LOL- another good one! HAHA
    My only advice is that if you think you don’t have enough time to do what you’ve listed- trying do that and having kids at the same time! Haha
    Kids force you to set priorities.
    That is my only advice although it isn’t really advice.
    My advice is to get up earlier 😉 Teehee!
    And get Pampered Chef’s all in one measuring cup. I swear by it. It makes baking really slick. haha

  2. You’re hilarious Kate. And I wouldn’t be the one to ask because I am the queen of distraction. Take this reading break for example. I don’t feel that I accomplished any schoolwork because I was constantly being distracted. I think that I’m going to try rewarding myself. If i get 2 hours of amazing productive, focused work, I’ll get to read for 40 or something. Good luck! heehee. Say ‘hi’ to Dan for me!

  3. I ask my self this everyday! Today my house is a mess, the kids are being monkeys, they are finally down for naps and instead of cleaning up I’m on here! Time…I could always use more of it!
